TV

Ever since Valiant Comics reentered the comic book industry with a new incarnation in 2012, the company has attempted to follow its competitors to Hollywood and bring their creations to the big screen. And while it remains to be seen whether Bloodshot, Harbinger, and X-O Manowar will get their own movies, there’s at least one Valiant title that has a good shot at coming to television: Quantum & Woody.

The Wrap is reporting that Anthony and Joe Russo have signed on to develop Quantum & Woody as a TV series, after they finish Avengers: Infinity War and its currently untitled sequel. The Russo brothers are also coming off the highly successful Captain America sequels, and they have a history of directing comedies for television like Arrested Development and Community. Given their background in comedy, it’s fitting that their new project is considered to be one of the best superhero/comedy comics.


As envisioned by writer Christopher Priest and artist MD Bright, Quantum & Woody were a pair of interracial adoptive brothers who had a strained relationship with each other at best. While investigating their father’s death, the brothers were accidentally given superpowers. However, the drawback of those powers is that they had to touch each other’s wristbands every 24 hours or they would both die.



Valiant has jokingly called Quantum and Woody “the world’s worst superhero team,” but there was quite a lot humor in the original run by Priest and Bright, and the series won critical acclaim. More recently, James Asmus and artist Tom Fowler re-envisioned Quantum & Woody with a new modernized take.

The Russos won’t be the only Marvel veterans working on the potential TV series. Ant-Man and the Wasp screenwriters Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari have also signed on to write the pilot episode and executive produce the show. A network isn’t currently attached to produce Quantum & Woody, but the Russos’ involvement with the project means that it will likely find a home somewhere.

Tupac Is Alive According To A New Photo

IF TUPAC SHAKUR WAS ALIVE RIGHT NOW, HE WOULD BE TURNING 48-YEARS-OLD ON JUNE 16, 1971. ACCORDING TO A CONSPIRACY THEORY, TUPAC SHAKUR IS NOT ONLY ALIVE, BUT THEY CLAIM TO HAVE A PHOTO THAT “PROVES” THAT THE LEGENDARY RAPPER DIDN’T DIE.

TUPAC SHAKUR DIED ON SEPTEMBER 13, 1996, AFTER SUCCUMBING TO HIS FOUR GUNSHOT WOUNDS HE SUFFERED FROM A DRIVE-BY SHOOTING IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, SIX DAYS EARLIER. OR AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TOLD TO BELIEVE. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE TUPAC SHAKUR, WHO WAS BORN LESANE PARISH CROOKS, NEVER DIED AND IS STILL ALIVE TO THIS DAY.

CONSPIRACY THEORIES CONTEND THAT SHAKUR FAKED HIS DEATH SO THAT HIS ENEMIES WOULD THINK HE WAS DEAD. THERE HAVE BEEN ALLEGED TUPAC SIGHTINGS IN CUBA AT A BOSTON CELTICS GAME, DRINKING HAND GRENADES IN NEW ORLEANS, AT THE BET AWARDS, AND KIM KARDASHIAN SWORE SHE SPOTTED TUPAC. SUGE KNIGHT’S SON SAID SHAKUR WAS STILL ALIVE AND LIVING IN MALAYSIA.


THE NEWEST “TUPAC IS ALIVE” SIGHTING DOESN’T GIVE THE LOCATION OR THE DATE OF THIS …
